The Weekend With Emma

As soon as I woke up I ate breakfast. After breakfast I watched TV for about 20 minutes. Then I got prepared for hockey around 10:00. We left and traveled to a place called Ice Castle. I explored and even bought slushies. Then it was time for hockey.  I got dressed up and went out on the ice. We played a lot of games like sharks and minnows, freeze tag, and real hockey. My team won ⅚ times. Then we went to Wendy’s. I woke up again and ate bacon. My mom got home from work and took me shopping for my Valentine’s Day box. Then we went to Burger King. When we got home my dad and I played in the snow. Then I hung out all night.

Abby’s Busy Night

Yesterday was busy! When I first came home from church I watched my iPad for a little bit. I like to watch movies on Netflix. Then we left for my grandparents’ house. When I got there I played with their dog Macho. He followed me everywhere in the house. He did a trick that I taught him. He is a good dog. When we left we went to get my haircut. After that we went to my youth group class at church and played crazy games. It is really fun! Then I came home after youth group and played with my cats. I have two cats named Chewy and Frosty. Chewy is 3 and Frosty is 2. They are really cute. I also played with Bosc before I went to bed. Bosc is my brother’s pet bearded dragon. He can grow up to 2 feet! Last, I went into my bedroom and watched television. Finally, I went to bed. I had a very busy night! Abby, age 9
